I just bought a small house that has Burnham V84 boiler installed.
It feeds a regular baseboard heat loop and a radiant floor loop. The hot water is from an electric water heater.
I had the boiler serviced and the technician could not answer my question so I called Burnham directly and they would not answer my question.
So I'm asking all of you professionals:
When there is no call for heat, the boiler will drop in temperature all the way to down to ambient temp.
I was taught that the aquastat on the boiler maintains the boiler with a low and high temp setting.
I was also taught that it is very bad for a boiler to drop low in temperature as all of the soot hardens and destroys the boiler.
I want to know if I am doing any damage to my boiler or is designed to operate this way?
In theory, in the summer, the boiler will not come on ever thus making it drop in temp and possibly sweat?
